Diddy is the highest earning celebrity, point, blank period.

Diddy earned $130 million just last year and Beyonce earned $105 million.

Diddy’s lucrative earnings came from a sponsorship deal with Ciroc vodka, his Sean John clothing line and from his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour. Diddy earned $70 million when Global Brand Group bought a majority stake in his clothing line, Forbes reported.

He also has large stakes in companies like DeLéon tequila, Aquahydrate alkaline water and Revolt TV — skyrocketing his net worth to about $820 million, according to Forbes.

Like Diddy, Beyoncé also jumped to the top of the list this year, rising from number 34 last year. This year was her second-highest earning of her career, Forbes noted, and can be attributed to her Formation World Tour as well as the release of her album, Lemonade.

Forbes’ list includes a range of celebrities from musicians to authors to athletes to “personalities” like Kim Kardashian West.
